It Takes a Village
Our Kids Club "Fill a Bag" food drive is open for any individual, group or organization who can donate grocery bags filled with kid-friendly foods.
Volunteers working together keep our doors open and food in the cupboards of hundreds of families every month.
Many local businesses support us and those we serve through their generous donations of goods as well as financial contributions.
We want to acknowledge them and ask you to support them in return!
We do our best to make sure those who rely on us have healthy choices. We bring in 3,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for our clients to take home each week. We follow USDA Healthy Eating Guidelines so our shoppers always have lean protein, dairy and whole grain choices.
